SSA Associateship

Join the SSA as a student associate

As an alternative to membership, students may join the SSA as associates, for a reduced fee. This is available to students who are taking or are about to undertake a UK-based university course in which the focus of study is in the addiction field. Overseas students enrolled on an addiction course at a university which subscribes to one or both of the Society’s journals are also eligible. This status offers most of the benefits of membership without the right to become a Trustee or attend or vote at the AGM, and with online-journal access only.

Please fill in the form below to apply for associateship.

Acceptance as an Associate of the Society for the Study of Addiction is not a professional endorsement or validation and we do not give permission to cite SSA-associateship on personal profiles for this purpose.

Student associateship must be renewed annually, expiring on 31 December. Applicants must provide proof each year of their ongoing student status.

Please upload a scan or screenshot of correspondence from your university:

  • dated in the current year
  • confirming that in the current or coming academic year
  • you have been accepted on a course focussing* on addiction.

(*The addiction-focus must be clearly stated.)
